Arkham Biography

Following the split of his band Coldheat in 2003, drummer Rob O'Ceallaigh searched the underground Limerick city rock and metal scenes in search of members for a new band. In 2004, O'Ceallaigh met Keith Kiely and Gary Lysaght, vocalist and bassist for Luminol. Although it would be another two years before any idea of a band would arise, the three hit it off as friends.

In late 2006, the band started to come together. Lysaght took the role of playing guitar, while Kiely remained on vocals and O'Ceallaigh on drums. The three searched for another guitarist to compliment Lysaght's guitar style and eventually Kiely found Greg Doyle, a friend from college. The now four-member band took the name of "Arkham," a name proposed by O'Ceallaigh after a fictional asylum for criminally insane in a comic book.

In early 2007 Arkham will go on hiatus as some members will be unavailable, but not before the band records demo tracks.

Irish Music Promotion
Irish Bands was set up to promote Irish Music to the world. Unsigned Irish Music gains very little exposure both in Ireland and worldwide due to the lack of media channels here and little interest from abroad. This is why young Irish musicians find it a constant struggle to get anywhere in the music business. The internet, as a growing, developing network of information is the best way to get Irish artists and Irish Music out to the world.

Irish Bands has been trying to expose Irish Music to the world since early 2004. We have found it hard to expose Irish Music as there is little interest in Irish Music on a world wide scale, but there is interest. We have to compete in the larger scale of world music and this has been difficult, yet our visitor traffic has been doubling every year. We hope that, through this site, Irish Music will soon get the exposure it deserves.
